The boss of the Federal Trade Commission, Joe Simons, said yesterday that his agency could split up big technology companies if other solutions or remedies did not work.
Those hoping this happens should not hold their breath. There are two investigations on going, one from the FTC, the other from DOJ. Given the rate of government action (generally GLACIAL) nothing will happen "soon".
But this comment is different from previous and big tech needs to wake up because the other side is waking up, too!
Confine comments to the break up to tech, not politics. Keep it related to competition, privacy concerns, information exchange. And how it might affect you, as a webmaster.
One of the comments by Simmons was going back and undoing big tech acquistions (think FB and instagram and snapchat, eg). This could radically change the info highway landscape.
